I was worried some people may think that two weeks would be too far in advance for it. But if you guys would like, I can make the “Request Deadline” be the 1st of December and then have the names out by the 4th. Either way, it's fine with me. Let me guys know so I can let Skool or BK know so they can make an announcement about it.

the first post says about 2 weeks before christmas theres the drawing of names, but then again we know how the season gets crazy at those times, maybe we could request that secret santa assignments be done by the start of the month? so we could have extra time for making stuff and dwc wont be too hard pressed for the extra work they have to do.

I agree. It's going to be a madhouse here during Christmas, so I know I won't have much time to draw or anything if you guys start the Secret Santa thing so close to Christmas like that. I would suggest the deadline be at the end of November and the artists be assigned their Secret Santa by the beginning of December.

Yeah I agree with knuckles. It'll be too hectic that close to Christmas. Might as well start up early.

Welcome to the academy of the 1337. Try not to get fragged.

Alright, I'll make the request deadline be the 31st and Dynamic or I will have the requests PQ'ed to everyone be the 2nd or 3rd… Dynamic and I need at least a few days so some stuff can get sorted out. Everyone'll have to PQ back to Dynamic or I so we can figure out if there are any Deadpans and let some of the DWC know.

Well, I guess I'd better hop on this gravy train before it leaves the station. This little community event has got quite a lot of people talking and it seems to be raking in quite a lot of attention… It IS the season to be joly after all, so I'd better fa la la la la, la la la laaaaa and get with it. Sign me up Mazoo, I'd be happy to whip up some artwork in exchange for some myself. I look forward to fufilling some one else's request!

If possible, I myself would like a fanart representation of my comic, Under Management. By that I mean, I would like whoever gets selected as my Secret Santa to create their own Under Management webcomic. So you can write up your own storyline and draw it using my characters, with their own characteristics in tact. I guess you could say I'd like some one to be a guest artist on Under Management for Christmas.

I do have some restrictions though, but I don't mean to sound picky. (I've just got my rythm down in Under Management, so I'd kind of like to keep it going.) I would not like the story in your single-page comic strip to be about Christmas, it can be about any random moment your heart desires. If possible, I'd like the comic to be within these dimensions: 650 pixels wide x 841 pixels high. The comic can be in any medium and should only take up one page. Feel free to use other characters in the scenario, just make sure to include my three characters in some way. You may even include your own characters if you wish, it can be some sort of marvelous crossover extravaganza! Oh, and keep the image in PNG format please, ‘cause that’s how I roll. ;)

Anyways, that's what I'm puttin' on my wish list. Sorry if I'm coming off as too specific and restricting, I'd really like the whole thing to be up to you. In summary, I'd like a guest artist comic that follows my specifications. Please and, (in advance), thankyou! I look forward to whatever it is that comes my way! Oh, and thankyou, Mazoo, for helping to bring holiday joy into the webcomic world! ROCK!

Or what about a place to post all the entries or something?

I would also like to see all of the comics, when they're done ^-^

Can we get 'em posted somewhere visible?

I will be creating a “Secret Santa Presents!” thread, which would only be to post pictures that people have made.

As for Dynamic… do you mean a self-plug on the art requests? If so, I would discourage it. It's the act of giving, not receiving–or in this case, shameless plugging!– the presents.

I know, I just figured I'd bring the question up before people started getting urls on their pretty gifts. You know, establish a ground rule since nobody's said anything thus far.

When I've done things like this in the past I've always included my URL at the bottom with my signature, although I also include the URL of the person I made it for so if I post it in the extras section of my website then it's a plug for them as well.

But I'll be happy to comply with fwhatever is decided.

Hey, I would like to participate.

I would want a picture relating to my comic, VENTA. Christmas related stuff is nice, and kinda easy to draw since the world is now a giant ball of ice.

VENTA can be found here:

Took me long to sign up ^^.

I'd like any picture XP. But preferably fantasy or something of the like.

Fanart of my comicwww.drunkduck.com/demonlife would be nice, but I don't think there's enough up to make good fanart yet =S. But I'll just say ^^.
Though I'm happy with everything ^^.

(An army of chocolate chip cookies attacking pink flying elephants would be kinda cool XP)

Fun! It'll encourage me to do some drawing as well.

Draw a cool pad for me and stick me in it, if you like. (Heck, stick yourself in it if you want) Make it as implausible as you like but don't forget a bathroom!
Description of me: 18, dark hair short on top and sides and long in the back, glasses, long black overcoat, jeans.
If you're gonna give me a pet, make it a cat or a dragon. Or a pig. B)

This doesn't have to be a comic, am I right? Just a nice drawing?

Sounds good! I'm really looking forward to what I have to draw and what my fancomic will look like… Oh yes, my Christmas tree is going to contain many pleasant surprises under it this year…

But anyways, thanks for putting me on the list Mazoo! Thanks for giving me a chance to participate!

Well why wouldn't I? You were well inside the deadline for requests…

Glad to hear you're so excited about it, though! That's the kind of enthusiasm we need!

It says on my name “NONE REQUESTED,” however, I had requested for fanart from my comic, but the theme/subject matter can be about anything. My comic is here, or just click my sig. Thanks :)

I don't know if I can change this, but I post it just in case:
-I want Santa in a fight, it can be a physical fight or an argument, and santa can be in casual clothes too. It might or might not have a happy ending :-D

Now that we have names assigned and all, how do we get about this? Is there a deadline on when the art should be finished? (before christmas of course) Do we send them directly to the secret santa or to the DWC?

There is a thread called Secret Santa Presents! in this same forum. You may have to scroll down the page a bit.

Sorry, but sign-ups are closed. It says so right in the beginning of this thread. You'll have to wait for next year.

I would like a picture of Chuck Norris and Mr T in a battle of DDR. I want fireworks in the background. And some kind of Christmas theme in it.

Oh shit.
I SO want to do his.

if you don't get assigned his, do one anyway and he can get an extra bonus gift.


So…. are we allowed do this? (Maybe after the assigned Santa puts theirs up?) Along with the one given to me, I'm seriously tempted to do one of the other requests as well…

as far as I know, there's no harm or foul in doing an extra page on your own to give to someone, just don't expect anything in return or let it take away from who you were assigned.
